"Jed at Freedomsight found an interesting story. It seems that CNN, in an attempt at exposing the horrible dangers of .50 BMG rifles just committed at least one, and possibly more than one felony. Apparently they purchased a .50 in a private-party transaction from a person in another state. In fact, they might have done it by straw-purchase - that is, they had someone local buy it for them. Those are no-no's. FEDERAL no-no's, unless the purchaser has a Federal Firearms License." ...

"Moore was participating in a seminar on self-defense and counterterrorism at the Purdue University Airport."

"The mock terrorist attack was on a Purdue Boeing 737 with 51 attendees ... The mock attack was simulated from the same components as the terrorist attack on the Sept. 11, flight number 93, the flight that crashed into the Pentagon." ...

Public took careful aim and splattered the brains of the would-be hijacker over his accomplice. The other tango didn't have time to be disgusted by the blood and brains, however, as her next double tap sent him to his reward."

"An employee's car parked at Abraham Lincoln Elementary School lot has sparked fury among some parents ushering their children inside the school each morning."

"The car -- a red, late-model Ford Mustang with a novelty plate on its front end reading 'Fight crime, shoot first' -- irritated one parent so much that she complained to her son's pre-kindergarten teacher. ..."

"'Being a member of the staff, well, you have to be an example to the kids,' the mother insisted. 'You don't just do whatever.'"

"'I can listen to parents and listen to their concerns,' [Principal Sandra] Dunning said. 'But we do live in America. That's part of our democracy, free speech.'"

"The parent, however, says the school's responsibility to provide positive role models to children supersedes the right to free speech, and that the offending license plate is a breech of the public trust placed in school employees." ...

... "In the wake of Brame's death, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer did an extensive investigation into officer-involved domestic violence in the Seattle area. They found 41 officers who had been accused of domestic violence within the previous five years, a number of them accused of multiple incidents. Few paid any professional price; less than half faced charges, and only one was convicted. Among the cases unearthed by the Post-Intelligencer are these:"

"Seattle Police Ofcr. Phil Rees flew into a rage and slammed his wife, Jenifer, into a wall and hurled a dresser drawer at her, leaving visible injuries. Rees called King County sheriff's deputies, who handed her intoxicated husband back his gun and let him drive away, 'so he wouldn't miss work in the morning.' No charges were filed. Rees was not disciplined, despite two prior complaints of domestic violence against him." ...

The Worth County Sheriff says he doesn't plan to suspend a deputy who was indicted Wednesday on a felony charge stemming from a bar fight.

A Dougherty County grand jury indicted Deputy Leonard Davis for aggravated assault.

He and Chief Deputy Bobby Sapp were in a fight in an Albany bar last November. The deputies thought someone was trying to manhandle a disabled customer, even though that man said they weren't.

Investigators say Davis cut a man with a knife. Sapp was not indicted because prosecutors say he'll accept a plea deal.

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Jurors have reached a verdict in a police brutality case in Prince George's County.

The jury delivered a verdict of not guilty on both counts against Cpl. Brain Addis.

Prosecutors said Addis kneed a handcuffed carjacking suspect in the groin and hit him with a police baton during an October 2003 arrest. The prosecution's case centered on a videotape of the arrest taken from a camera mounted in Addis' patrol car.

Addis testified Tuesday that he kneed the suspect in the stomach, not the groin. He also said the suspect had reached for his waistband as if he was trying to get a weapon.

Addis was charged with second-degree assault and making a false entry on a public record. Both charges are misdemeanors.

Hell, son, you could even carry a 5.56-caliber assault rifle with attached 40 mm grenade launcher into the Sail Inn, provided that you held all of the required documentation and paid the cover." ...

"Although Cleveland's WKYC admits most of the Hi-Point 9mm handguns that are used in crimes are purchased "on the street", the story goes on to blame gun shows and Ohio law for the misuse of these firearms." ...

"Many are purchased on the streets. But investigators say gun shows have also become a goldmine for Hi-Points in part because Ohio law permits multiple gun sales - and under certain circumstances, with no records - which has helped Ohio become a nationwide leader in guns sold here - and used out of state in crimes." ...

"Assembly Bill 1850 ... would revise the state’s definition of animal cruelty to include 'killing or injuring...wild game and wild birds.' The revision would make legal hunting and trapping activities criminal offenses. ..."

"'The bill creates a contradiction in the law as the state code allows regulated hunting,' said Tony Celebrezze, U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance director of state services. 'But the definition of animal cruelty in the bill makes hunting illegal.'"

"'If AB 1850 becomes law, anti-hunters will have a field day ensuring that sportsmen are prosecuted on animal cruelty charges,' said Celebrezze." ...
